2) Meals for displaced individuals/families
Over 6 weeks we will be assembling, delivering and serving meals to the College Hill Presbyterian Church, St. Margaret’s Episcopal and Corinthian Baptist Church in the Trotwood area, which was hit hard by the tornadoes. WE WILL NOT BE BAKING OR DELIVERING THE TORNADO RELIEF MEALS NEXT WEEK, JULY 1-7. Gretchen Cleaves will send out the new recipe which we will use for the following three weeks.
A third arm of our relief efforts is continued clean-up efforts.
Join us each Saturday morning in the church parking lot (near the pavilion) at 9AM. We will meet and then head to the affected areas for continued clean-up efforts. What to bring: work shoes, work gloves, 5-gallon buckets and a rake. To contact us for any of these programs, please reach out to us at Mission@sminster.com
Thank you for your continued support in our relief efforts!
